I use windows 7 ultimate edition - 32 bit
I have a Toshiba Harddisk of storage capacity 1 TB. When I first bought it, I renamed it to "TOSHIBA".
At first, the computers to which I connected my external harddisk showed the correct names but over time, the computers started showing the name as Local Disk.
The disk management menu has the correct name (TOSHIBA).
When I use the safe mode, the name is correctly displayed.
Some where in the net I saw about using autorun.inf files to change the volume label.
But when I rename notepad file in the harddisk to autorun.inf it doesnot get renamed. And change back to previous name itself. Not even in the Safe mode. ( I am the admisitrator)
How can I make windows to display the correct volume label?
P.S: I have tried plugging in it various computers with windows 7.
All computers show the harddisk name as Local Disk in normal mode and TOSHIBA in safe mode.
I plugged it in a computer with Windows XP. It showed correct name in normal mode.
